Free Download: Population Health Management in 2018: Investing in Social Health Determinants' Data Collection and Analysis

As the healthcare industry continues its shift toward a greater percentage of reimbursement tied to value-based outcomes, the pressure to effectively manage population health is also growing. The percentage of healthcare organizations with a population health management program increased from 70 percent in 2016 to 92 percent in 2018, according to the latest Population Health Management Survey by the Healthcare Intelligence Network. Health risk stratification, care coordination/advocacy and health promotion and wellness are the leading services provided through population health management programs. While the growth in population health management programs was significant over the last two years, these programs still face a number of challenges, including provider alignment and engagement as well as patient engagement.

Download this free HINtelligence report for more data on the leading health condition targeted by population health management programs, data sources used to determine the appropriate level of population health management interventions, the most common value-based reimbursement model under which population health management programs are reimbursed and much, much more.
